Botox® to Help with Heavy Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Hyperhidrosis is a rare medical condition that makes the body unable to limit heavy sweating. People with this condition may have noticed excessive, heavy sweating as early as in their teen years.
The most common areas for excessive sweating are:
- armpits (changes of clothing are frequently needed)
- hands (sweating can inhibit manual tasks)
- feet (heavy sweating and unpleasant odour)
- face (sweating can lead to ongoing skin break outs)
A Safe Medical Solution
Treatment of this condition is covered by many health insurance plans. Euphoria Wellness Spa in Peterborough has a medical doctor on staff who is an certified Botox® therapeutic injector for Hyperhidrosis.
How Does Botox® for Hyperhidrosis Work?
Botox® injected in the treatment area is safe and effective to limit heavy sweating. When injected just under the skin, it blocks the chemical transmitters from signalling the glands in that area to produce sweat. As a result, perspiration levels may return to normal almost immediately.
Studies done to evaluate the results of Botox® show 95% of patients experienced an average reduction in sweating of 83% in one week. The positive effects of the Botox® injections typically last seven months.
